Every misperception and lie usually begins with an initial, faulty definition of a word coupled with repeating that word over and over again, hundreds and thousands of times without challenge. Such is the case with the word “anti-Semitism.” If you are new to my articles, you may not be familiar with the truth of this matter.

Pittsburgh Shooting

Now, once again, we have another “shooting” incident and this time, of Jews. Massive media coverage of this recent event by a lone, “neo-Nazi” crazed gunman has prompted a new round of denunciations of “anti-Semitism.” The Jews, the media and politicians demand doubling down on anyone who even criticizes the Jews. This is not about this alleged1 shooting of Jews in a Pittsburgh Synagogue. It’s about creating an opportunity to prompt another surge in advancing mandatory “Holocaust” education in public schools or creating a Special Envoy (to the President) to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, for example. Already near where I live is another story of a “Holocaust Survivor” making yet another stop on a nationwide tour. Watch for the same in a city near you. Never mind that the 6 million Jews who died in WWII has been absolutely debunked.2 But, of course, you’ll never hear that in the media or in the schools.

Back to this Pittsburgh shooting. If you go back and review other so-called shootings (back to the Sandy Hook days),3 this latest one has all the earmarks of another set-up job. Staged props, “active shooter drills” shortly before the shootings … Instead of cries for more gun control, in this case, it was another plea to stamp out these anti-Semites.


But what if the American people realized that today’s Jews are not of Semitic descent? What would then become of the Jews’ sad story of “anti-Semitism”? Here is the truth – they are not Semitic nor are they biblical Israelites. I discuss this at length in my book, Identifying Biblical Israel Today (Book Two).

For those who do not yet know, I’ll just mention a few facts verifying this from my book. Let’s begin with the meaning of “semitic.”

“Shemitic:  Pertaining to Shem, the son of Noah.” – Noah Webster, American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828

Shemites are Semites and are descendants of Shem, one of the sons of Noah.

“Now these are the records of the generations of Shem, Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah; and sons were born to them after the flood.” – Genesis 10:1

Abraham was a descendant of Shem, and therefore, was a Semite. Anti-Semite means, therefore, against the Semites, which includes all the descendants of Shem.

Are the Jews Semites?

Today’s Jews come from a heterogeneous or multi-race mix of people. Their history reveals that they are descendants of Khazar, the grandson of Japheth, not Shem:

“Joseph [the last Khazarian king] then proceeds to provide a genealogy of his people. Though a fierce Jewish nationalist, proud of wielding the ‘sceptre of Judah,’ he cannot, and does not, claim for them Semitic descent; he traces their ancestry not to Shem, but to Noah’s third son, Japheth; or more precisely to Japheth’s grandson, Togarma, the ancestor of all Turkish tribes. ‘We have found in the family registers of our fathers,’ Joseph asserts boldly, ‘that Togarma had ten sons, and the names of their offspring are as follows: Uigur, Dursu, Avars, Huns, Basilii, Tarniakh, Khazar, Zagora, Bulgars, Sabir. We are the sons of Khazar, the seventh…’ ” – Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, p. 72

Furthermore, the Jews also claim they are descended from Ashkenaz, another grandson of Japheth, not Shem. The Bible gives the genealogy of Ashkenaz from Japheth:

“The sons of Japheth were Gomer and Magog and Madai and Javan and Tubal and Meshech and Tiras. The sons of Gomer were Ashkenaz and Riphath and Togarmah.” – Genesis 10:2-3

Jewish historian Arthur Koestler agrees that Ashkenaz and Togarmah were brothers and are descendants of Japheth:

“It should be mentioned that the Ashkenaz of the Bible refers to a people living somewhere in the vicinity of Mt. Ararat in Armenia. The name occurs in Genesis 10,3 and I Chronicles 1,6 as one of the sons of Gomer, who was the son of Japheth. Ashkenaz is also a brother of Togarmah (a nephew of Magog) whom the Khazars, according to King Joseph, claimed as their ancestor.” –  Koestler, Thirteenth Tribe, p. 181

The Khazars and Ashkenazi were cousins from Japheth’s family line, not Shem. The Jews of today are not, and cannot be, Semites! Therefore, the Jews are NOT descendants of the ancient biblical Israelites.

To criticize Jews or expose what they are doing and what they believe is not anti-Semitism. So, the perception of anti-Semitism today is a lie. If that is a lie, then what else is a lie?

Of course, you won’t hear this from the Catholics or Protestants. That’s why you just have to pursue the truth for yourself.
